A ribbon-cutting will be held at noon on Friday, December 6 for the town’s newly completed affordable housing project. The condominium project, the first of its kind in the town, boasts a complex of 12 “manor houses” on 2.7 acres at 181 Accabonac Road in East Hampton.
The choices for eligible buyers include one one-bedroom condo; two two-bedroom condos, and one three-bedroom condo in four separate buildings. The “manor house” concept was developed and donated by architect Amado Ortiz, a member of the East Hampton Housing Authority.
Sale contracts are being finalized for all of the units, and residents are expected to begin moving in before the end of 2019.
Prices for the condo units range for $126,835 to $267,850. Buyers were qualified as eligible with incomes of up to 130 percent of the median income for Suffolk County.
According to a town release, “At a future date the complex will be dedicated to the late Barbara Jordan, another East Hampton Housing Authority member, who worked tirelessly on the mission of providing affordable housing in East Hampton Town.”
